‘The Lies Within’ was published as an eBook and in paperback by Legend Press on the 2nd May. It is the third book in the DI Will Jackman series. I was delighted when I was asked if I wanted to take part in this blog tour and was very kindly sent a copy of ‘The Lies Within’ to review.
The body of Grace Daniels daughter is found in a Leicestershire country lane. Someone murdered her, but why? Jo was a young woman with most of her life still ahead of her. Grace and her family are falling apart and the investigation doesn’t seem to be leading anywhere. Then Faye, an old friend of Grace’s turns up and is of great comfort to her.
DI Will Jackman finds himself getting involved in the case as it seems it might be connected to others that he is reviewing. When another person is found dead all evidence points to Grace. But Jackman believes there is more to it and that Grace isn’t the killer. What happens next? That’s for you to find out.
Until now I had never read any of Jane Isaac’s books. I have heard so many good things about them though. So, when the opportunity arose to review ‘The Lies Within’ I just couldn’t refuse. Although this is the third book in the series it can be read as a standalone.
I thoroughly enjoyed ‘The Lies Within’. What a fantastic read! It was totally gripping and very hard indeed to put down. I really like Jane Isaac’s style of writing. It was obvious just how much hard work and research went into this book with regards to police procedurals and court cases. The mostly short chapters left me eager to know more.
I had a couple of hunches and I was proved right, but there was still a shock or two in store. I enjoyed getting to know all the characters. There was something about Faye that I really didn’t like. I didn’t warm to her at all and felt that she had an ulterior motive.
‘The Lies Within’ is a must read for fans of crime fiction. You won’t be disappointed. I will certainly be reading all the books Jane Isaac has written and her future novels too.
I give this book 5 out of 5.
